Puerto Rico: El Yunque Rainforest & Waterfalls Half-Day Tour

1. Puerto Rico: El Yunque Rainforest & Waterfalls Half-Day Tour

Start your day by meeting your guide at the local fruit stand “Frutera Flores” in the town of Luquillo. Here, your guide will pick up a variety of fresh local fruit for the tour, and you have the opportunity to purchase some local fritters and/or a fresh fruit smoothie. After this stop, follow your guide in your rental car to the majestic El Yunque Rainforest- without a doubt Puerto Rico’s greatest Natural Wonder. It is the only tropical rainforest, the most biologically diverse, and the most studied forest in the US National Forest System. After an interpretive hike through natural trails lined with beautiful flora and fauna, and some river wading, arrive at a hidden gem found in the heart of the rainforest. This breathtaking segment of the 29,000-acre forest is like a natural playground. Here, have the chance to swim in the natural pools, refresh in waterfalls, slide down an exhilarating waterslide, rope swing into the river, jump from different rock formations, and enjoy fresh local fruit with a view. Along with all of this excitement, you will also have time to simply relax to the sounds of cascading waters and take in the beauty of this very special place.

Luquillo: 30-Minute Flyboard Experience

2. Luquillo: 30-Minute Flyboard Experience

Have a 30-minute Flyboard experience off the coast of Luquillo Beach. The Flyboard is a board, much like a snowboard or a wakeboard, connected to a jet ski by a long hose. The rider (flyer) is strapped into boots attached to the Flyboard and is lifted out of the water by water jets on the bottom of the board.   Once you arrive at the beach, you’ll be welcomed and given clear instructions on how to control the board. Head out onto the water and you’ll be coached until you can control the board yourself. While you're up in the air, you can take in beautiful views of the ocean and the bay and fly like Iron Man over the waters on this futuristic, almost-unbelievable board.

The ziplines fluctuate between 400 to 1,000 feet long and between 50 and 100 feet high. This adventure-filled 2-hour outing includes safety equipment and certified bilingual tour guides.

My husband and I came to Puerto Rico for our honeymoon and it’s rainforest we had such an amazing tour guides, we met at the fruit stand, then the group drove about 30mims to the rainforest. It was the best hike I’ve ever had. Hiking and climbing experience helps but it’s not needed as the guides really do help you! We finally came to a spot where we could have fun in the water! Cliff jumping, natural water sliding and rope swinging! They also took pictures of us and that’s the only thing I need now to make this 5stars! -Bri & Mike Miller

Both Jessie and Patricia were knowledgeable and safety conscious. It was more rigorous than I thought it would be but they are patient and allow you to follow your own pace. If you want to go off the beaten path then check out this tour. The only downside is I would've enjoyed more time at the waterfall. They give you 1/2hour - 40 minutes tops.

This was the highlight of our trip! We had a great group of people together. It was fun and challenging (not too hard though) but very good experience. Our guides janri and Patricia were the best! Would highly suggest using them both. Patricia was very fun and energetic and full of great information about the island and plants

We went into this not really knowing exactly what we were going to be doing - intentionally - so we were surprised at every turn, pleasantly though! It was strenuous, but exhilarating!

Fantastic, staff nice and very knowledgeable. We loved it.
